The Blue Sky Solar Boost features reverse-polarity protection, MPPT, and selectable-charge voltage for flooded and gel lead-acid batteries. An equalize function periodically conditions liquid electrolyte lead-acid batteries. An optional user-friendly digital display is available to monitor PV charge performance. The display shows battery voltage, solar current, charge current and charge mode, either in the controller, as a remote panel installed up to 300 feet away, or both. Optional temperature compensation of charge voltage is also available to further improve charge controller and battery performance. Solar Boost controllers are available with or without digital display and optional remote display and are covered by a 3-year limited warranty.
SB3048 is designed to charge 24 and 48 VDC battery systems from a 48- to 60-volt array (maximum open-circuit voltage is 140). Maximum charge current is 30 A output at 24 or 48 VDC. Listed to UL 1741 and CSA E332-1/2.
Solar Boost 3024i and 2512iX charge controllers include load control outputs. These controllers can also serve as lighting controllers with complete flexibility over post-dusk and pre-dawn ON time settings. An IPN Pro-Remote is required to enable and configure dusk-to-dawn lighting control. The IPN Pro-remote does not need to remain with the system and can be used as a setup tool only.
Solar Boost 2512i , 2512iX, and 2524iX
The Solar Boost 2512i provides a fully automatic 3-stage charge controller system. A partial IPN network interface is included to allow use of the IPN-Remote or IPN Pro-Remote displays. Additional features provided in the Solar Boost 2512iX and 2524iX include automatic or manual equalization, battery temperature sensor input, full IPN network compatibility, and an auxiliary output. The user-configurable auxiliary output can serve as either a 25-amp (15/20 in 2524iX) load controller or a 2-amp auxiliary battery charger. The auxiliary battery charge feature is ideal for charging a separate battery such as the engine battery in an RV.
Solar Boost 3024iL
SB3024iL is designed to charge 12- and 24-volt battery systems from a 24-volt array (maximum open circuit voltage is 57). Maximum charge current is 40 amps output at 12 and 30 amps at 24 VDC. The new IPN network interface coordinates multiple controllers and shares temperature sensors and display. ETL/cETL Listed.
A remote temp probe and a remote digital display can be mounted up to 300 feet away and used with all of the Solar Boost controllers. Optional shunts allow it to monitor other charging sources and loads.
The IPN-Remote display provides basic monitoring for IPN compatible charge controllers. The unit displays battery voltage, output current and charge controller system status for up to 8 controllers on a single IPN network. An LED display is used to provide readability in any lighting. The charge status indicator displays present charge controller system status and shows relative battery state-of-charge. When the battery is being charged the display toggles between battery voltage and charge controller output current. The current display can be configured to show the total output current from all controllers on the IPN network, or the output current from a particular controller. Multiple IPN-Remote displays can be placed on a single IPN network even if an IPN Pro-Remote is already present.
The Pro-Remote combines charge controller monitoring and battery system monitoring into a single user-friendly remote display. With the IPN Pro-Remote you no longer have to guess how much battery capacity remains. A high-accuracy calculation of remaining battery capacity compensates for a variety of factors including charge/discharge current, battery size, type, temperature and how the battery was brought back to full charge. Information learned from past battery behavior is used to continuously improve metering accuracy. The IPN Pro-Remote also monitors and controls Blue Sky's IPN-based charge controllers. It can monitor both the combined total and individual status of up to eight IPN charge controllers on a single IPN network.
